Testicular torsion surgery recovery

Dear Ask The Doctor:
I received surgery for testicular torsion about 4 days ago. I have stitches on both testicles; my right one was torted but my left one was operated on also for preventative measures. I am wondering how long I have to wait before it is safe to ejaculate, whether by masturbation or by sexual activity. Thank you.


Recovery from testicular torsion surgery is relatively short. Recovery varies between 10 days to 2 weeks. After this time you may resume sexual activity.
